Just out of curiosity: I want our Confluence to authenticate users directly against our UCS domain controller. I know, it works with Active Directory / Samba and I’m quite confident it will work, too, with OpenLDAP.
But is one preferable to the other?
As far as I understand the UMC and udm populate the OpenLDAP first and then synchronizes selected data to Samba. So, for client applications having access to the most complete dataset it seems reasonable to have them access OpenLDAP instead of Samba, isn’t it?
